when i connect hard drive i cannot go into the bios setup. If i remove the hard drive, i can go into it.

The boot device priority

1st boot device MBAV7.0.3 SLOT 02
2ND boot device MBA V7.0.3 SLOT 02

ENDLESS LOOP FOR BBS BOOTING ENABLED
DEFAULT BOOT ORDER RHCB
I guess there is a problem with the hard disk (or maybe the mainboard/SATA controller).

Do you have another hard disk that you can test on this server?
My boot order was wrong, i changed it to CHRB and the server supports 640 GB in each slot, but i was trying to connect  1 TB. So, i used all 500 GB drives in the server. Thanks for posting
Thanks for your reply
You're welcome, glad it is resolved :)
